Summer Vegetable Fried Rice
Using seasonal vegetables, Summer Vegetable Fried Rice is a versatile side dish that you can add any veggies you like to and is on the table in under 30 minutes.
Everyone loves a good veggie fried rice and I love to load it with as many as my favorite vegetables as possible and customize depending what is in season.
The combination of vegetables I used in this dish are onions, sweet peppers (the small colorful ones you find in the produce section in the little bags) summer squash, carrots and fresh peas. Frozen peas can also be used if you can’t find fresh.
For a delicious, sweet bite, I like to add fresh pineapple pieces. You could also add fresh orange segments too. Make it a meal, add cooked chicken, beef, shrimp or tofu.
This rice was part of a complete meal with Slow Cooker Orange Chicken Wings (< click text for recipe link) and simple sautéed snow peas.
Which rice is best for fried rice
Short grain, white rice is what I like to use. It is also best if the rice has been cooked and cooled, so leftover rice or make the rice ahead is what you want to prevent it clumping.
